Jewellery expert Vashi Dominguez holds an exceptional title of “Ring Master” & “Jeweller to the Stars” that makes him the most sought after man in the diamond industry.

Back in 2000, Vashi secured his first diamond deal and started trading diamonds. By 2007, shortly after he expanded his business in Europe, he then opened his website www.Vashi.com to share his business online. Throughout 2012 and 2013 he had been featured in numberous TV segments, Press as well as publications. This year with his expertise and extraordinary collection, he had been styling and dazzling celebrities from the likes of Kara Tointon who was spotted at the Grand Prix Ball wearing 1 million worth of diamonds (July 2014).

In September 2014 celebrities dazzle in Vashi diamonds at Elton John’s annual End of summer party. Also in September, Rita Ora flaunted a glittering couture gown (with over half a million pounds worth of diamonds by her personal London jeweller Vashi) in the GQ Men of the year awards. He is also the name behind celebrities like Paula Lane, Alicia Keys, Isla Fisher, Cheryl Cole and more.

Vashi.com offers a wide range of selection from engagement rings, wedding rings, necklaces, bracelets and even earrings. Through his site, everyone can now avail the most popularized settings and design that is set to make heads turn. Just like the Royal ring by Kate Middleton, the “Diamond and Blue Sapphire Ring” that is valued at £300,000 and can purchased with Vashi’s site for only £999.

Vashi Dominguez is well known to reject 9 out 10 to deliver only the finest of all diamonds basing it from the 4 C’s – carat weight, cut, clarity and color.

Carat Weight – a diamonds size determines its weight from fraction of a carat to several carats. Large stones are considered rare; therefore, a single stone of a two carat diamond will cost way more than two or four stones that make up a two-carat diamond.

Cut – determines a diamonds ability to reflect light pear and glimmer. It’s not about the shape (oval, circle, marquis). The way a diamond had been cut is what determines it sparkle.

Clarity – a diamonds overall appearance involves numerous scratches and blemishes. The lesser the blemishes are, the better the clarity of the stone will be. All of which are unavoidable as it is the result of carbon exposed to tremendous heat and pressure deep within the earth.

Color – the absence of a color is what increases the value of a diamond. The perfect diamond has no hue and as pure as a droplet of water.

With all this in mind, make sure to check out the rest of Vashi’s collection and dress up and get styled just like the stars.
